Dispersed Camping on Canon Ferry Lake

Gorgeous spot! Free dispersed camping, first come basis, 14 day stay limit. Lots of spots to choose from in the area. Beautiful vies of Canyon Ferry Lake. Most spots have a picnic table and a camp fire ring. Some spots are close to each other so in the summer I bet it’s packed. The lakes beach is full of rocks. Please make sure to leave no trace if you come to this spot! Pack it in, pack it out. There are vault toilets around the area if needed. No dumping.

Needs some work

This campground is okay however it needs some maintenance. It’s seems like several of the sites need to be cleaned up and re-leveled. They were working on the volleyball site when we visited so maybe they are in the middle of renovations? The cabins in the back had some nice views and for the most part the sites were shaded. I was glad my site was near the office/shower house/laundry due to the fact the WiFi worked only in that immediate area. Big park, nature trail out the back that was interesting and some animals like in the old style KOA’s. I really liked the tent area and shelters on the far side, they looked brand new and the camp kitchen was nice. Good base camp for the area.

Close to Memorial Falls

This campground was close to Memorial Falls which we wanted to hike the next day. The setting is wooded and right off scenic Highway 89. The fee for our site #6 was $5 plus $5 for extra vehicle. We were able to fit a small SUV and our pop up truck camper. There were only 6 sites here and we were the only ones here in midweek in late September 2020. There was a clean vault toilet, picnic table and barbecue stand. Simple basic campground near activities.

Lots of wildlife

Great place to camp. Lots of wildlife. Saw a black bear 30 yards from the camp site.

Sunsets for the books

Absolutely gorgeous spot. Lots of privacy, picnic tables and firepits. Our neighbor went out on the water with his boat every day to fish from sun up to sun down. Noise is super minimal and only about ~4 spots were taken while we were there on a weekend.

Clean and Efficient

We stayed one night here. It is a nice campground in an urban area. It seemed that it needed a little landscape maintenance and was a bit dusty. Most everything was shut down for the season which is something to keep in mind if you visit in the fall.

Great location with a caveat

Pull up next to the lake. Electric, wood, toilets, noisy boat docking, gnats available. Office super friendly and helpful. Fishing near dam close by.

You're in a zoo!

Rams and deer come right up to your RV. The facility itself is dated but has bathrooms and laundry

Convenient Free Camping

This dispersed campground is perfect for any configuration. It’s important to note that there are only 2 vault toilets and no water available. There are spaces that gather crowds, but depending on your setup you can stay secluded.

Nice and quiet by the river

Spacious campground, sites are not private but they are very well kept. We parked our van so that we could have a little privacy from the neighbors across the way. 2 of the sites have roofs over the tables. The tables are concrete, fire pits are well maintained, bathrooms are very clean! The boat launch is also very well kept and easily accessible. Some of the sites are reservable and so we found one with open dates, the next morning we were greeted with a man who was angry that we were in his spot. We didn’t know because the site said it was open. We figured it was because the camp host was off duty and didn’t write the new reservation, but just be aware. $15 per night but it was off season (?) and not required at the time.
